NPR's Kevin Kling featured guest at next Sunset Stages event
July 16, 2012
The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University's Fine Arts Series continues its five-part Sunset Stages at Saint Ben's free outdoor concert series at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 19 at the Darnall Amphitheater, located on the north side of the Benedicta Arts Center at CSB.
The first concert, featuring bluegrass favorite Monroe Crossing, was June 22 follwed by Gypsy Mania on June 28 and Tonic Sol-fa on July 12.
Kevin Kling, best known for his popular commentaries on National Public Radio's All Things Considered, will share three of his endearing stories at the July 19 performance. Kling's autobiographical tales are as enchanting as they are true to life.
Driven by a New Orleans-style horn section and the campy purr of vocalist Davina Sowers, Davina & the Vagabonds is one of the busiest bands in Minneapolis because of their high energy stage performances and original sound. The quintet will perform the final concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 26.
Thanks to generous funding support by the Minnesota State Arts Board, Gustavo Pena and D.J. Bitzan Jewelers, this concert series is free. Seating in the amphitheater itself is available on a first-come basis, but guests are also welcome to spread out across the lawns surrounding the Benedicta Arts Center.
